    @emmanneliza:  I always thought the same thing.  We are not doing a separate registry for the wedding and the bridal shower.  My Maid/Matron of Honor is just giving our (mine and my FI’s) registry info out to the bridal shower party guests.

    @emmanneliza:  We totally had this discussion at a Bridesmaid or Best Man meeting the other day. I included registry info in the bridal shower invitation and several of the BMs were like “But that’s all couple stuff. Shouldn’t she have a personal registry?” I have never in my life heard of this. I always thought you either have a lingerie party (clearly indicated by the invitation/inclusion of the bride’s sizes) or a “household” party, where gifts are purchased from the registry. Although, I wouldn’t be offended if I were the groom & someone sent a personal gift. One of my gifts to the bride is a wedding day emergency kit and I could totally see getting that Philosophy Bride gift set or something similar for someone.

    I always think of a shower as benefitting both the bride and groom unless it is specified as a lingerie shower.

    I belive the gifts are suppose to be for bride and groom. We actually had a fight while we were registering yesterday because SO wanted to register for an electric shaver…. In the end I let him scan it… but I’m 99% sure that NO ONE will buy that/bring it to the shower.

    @julies1949:  even that is benefiting both Wink

    I always thought it was a benefit for both with the idea of ‘setting up house’
